Married and Navigating Jewish Life

Blogging about marriage and relationships

It’s a sad world when sex is a taboo word, especially in the Jewish World

It is a sad day.

Like it is every single day.

Seriously, why is it that sex is such taboo issue among Jews and it shouldn’t be. The Gemara says to sleep naked with your spouse and the Rambam stated that everything can be done as long as you remember that everything should be done in moderation.

Sex is not about shutting off the lights, hiding under the covers, and trying to figure out how to figure out how to insert C into socket V. There is a lot more to that. There is a reason why Hashem made it pleasurable. It is meant to be fun. It’s the one thing that is supposed to be only for a Husband and a Wife and it is the extra whip cream and cherry that goes with that ice cream we call marriage. Without it then you might as well take an ad out in the Jewish Press for an opposite gender roommate that is healthy and is willing to have unprotected sex for the purposes of having children.

So, we do hope that our blog will be more about this. Discussing the aspects of Jewish Marriage that others will not talk about. To be able to point out ‘Well this type of position can be fun’ ‘This is how you hide stuff from the kids’ and ‘this sex toy is great!’ is currently we believe a realistic goal. Not every Jew is knowledgable in this stuff, and since we are…well we’ll shout it out for you.

So, starting Monday we’ll be posting up our first post concerning this. If you have any questions, comments, ideas for a topic either 1) reply to a blog post or 2) email it to our address which is on top of the page.
